Alum Powder

Alum Powder

Aluminum powder is used in traditional food processing, and in home pickling to add crispiness. When pickling, use 1oz of alum powder to 1 gallon of water. Alum powder can also be used as a drying aid by helping control body odors and stop the growth of bacteria when mixed with sweat. It can be directly applied to perspiring areas prone to body odor, including the feet.
